    There is a girl who lives near me that is what some, in lieu of 'other names' might defne as a child/woman. She is in her early 20's and a sweet person. She lives with her aunt and uncle. She has to have 24/7 supervision to some extent and will always require that. She doesn't talk much and can do a bit of 'self care'. She carries a doll that is larger premmie size in a little carry bed like an infant seat and trys to care for it the best she can.

    I made a gift for her for her 'baby' and it is a cacoon sack like the young mothers seem to like so well for their babies now days. You just slide the baby inside and it feels more confined and 'snuggled'. It was made of varigated Caron simply soft yarn and took a skein crocheted with a size H hook. It is 8 inches across and 13 inches high. I'll be giving it to her later this afternoon. I hope she will like it. I liked the colors and rose I picked out to go with it.

    hope you like seeing the pictures.

    Thanks to you all for those replies. I delivered it to her just over a half hour ago, and she was so happy with it. I GOT A HUG. When she was asked how she liked it and a couple other questions, she said GOOD!!! nice and loud. We put it on and it looked nice on the doll. Came right up under its arms. When I left she had her 'baby' sitting up beside her on their living room couch in her baby cuddle sack.

    I took over some material for her to use at a 'sewing program for the disabled'that she goes to twice a week, where her 'helper' helps her make things, (she gets to put her foot on the sewing machines motor foot, when they tell her to, so she feels like she is doing at least some of the work) and she is going to make a stuffed teddy bear for some one she likes. I told her to let me know if she wants ribbon or lace to tie around the teddy bears neck.

    She is a sweet person. I thought you guys might like to hear how the gift giving went.

    Hugs to all

    Yes, we're glad to hear how that went. No surprise, though.

    Also, SHE's a sweet person? You are too!!!
